This is such an awesome book for ANY pike angler. The first few chapters explain locations and seasonal movements of pike, and the science behind the pike's environment including feeding habits, spawning, different lake types, etc. The "Presentations for Pike on the Fly" chapter is really where the fly-fishing aspect takes over (Ch 5). Many new recipies for pike flies, over 20 in total. The great thing about this book is that Barry explains how he uses each type of fly and when to use specific types of flies. If you haven't read his first book, "Pike on the Fly," read that one first and then get this book. "Mastering Pike on the Fly" is a 10-year refinement of the tactics explained in "Pike on the Fly." Barry Reynolds knows his stuff well!!
